Bike looks really great! Enjoy...



...waiting for the barrage of fit experts to go on about the stem height, saddle position etc etc etc... ;)

Thank you for the comments! :wink: RobH this bike is excelent for climbs and very comfortable but not flexy! The Saevid saddle is better than selle italia slr with half of the weight!

The saddle position and total fit seems somehow awkward but other than that it's a fine bike.

:welcome: A very fine bike. The saddle does look a little too forward but it could be the angle of both pictures. If you find the steering not as precise as you want you may want to look at other fork options. Changing my Lynskey's fork from an Easton SLX to an Alpha Q GS30 made a very positive change to my bike.

I would also personally go with a black stem but then again that's me.

A made the bike fit today and I had to move my saddle position :o ! I think my bike is better now. Good observation Kgt.

Juanmoretime what stem do you recommend? Maybe you had problem with easton fork because the integrated headset used in Lynskey's...

My R320 has a King headset but it is not integrated. The funny thing is that I was okay with the Easton when I rode it but wanted a straight blade fork. I noticed after I put the Alpha Q fork on how much better the control of my bike was cornering and how it tracked straighter when riding rough pavement. With the Easton rough road would have me all over the place. FWIW My Easton was when Easton made sub 300 gram SLX forks. Mine was 289 grams.

I ride a no longer available ITM Volo stem but I'm also a big fan of the Ritchey 4-Axis WCS and with titanium bolts comes in pretty light for the money and is plenty still enough for me.

I've always loved the nice lines on a Ti bike. Been wanting to have one myself for the longest time. Yours just make me envious, tsk...

Nice bike! :thumbup:
